Eric:

While it isn''t exactly what you were asking for, don''t overlook the option of working Herb (SOUTHBOUND II) each evening/afternoon during your cross. You''ll pick up the boat names of others on that route (and can even make contact to set up a separate sked during the ''call-up'' period 30 mins before his Net. Also, his weather routing is excellent on that route from what I''ve seen.

Have you posted any extended logs or summary conclusions about visiting Europe that I could review? We''re considering Europe & the Med as a ''next cruise'' and have been digging for some detail on how things are these days (costs, EU issues, etc.). If so, please let me know, either here or via email. Thanks.

Eric, I still think you''d find Herb''s net a useful vehicle for ID''ing other passagemakers doing the same route you are planning, at the same time. At least, that''s always been true for us.
